Oysters, Mother’s Day, and Memorial Weekend

May 3, 2017

 

May’s Festivities

May is a busy, but special month here at Syncline Winery. With many events and holidays taking place, we hope you can join us for a few of these spring weekends. 
 
Kicking off this Month, we are hosting our first Wine Inspiration Night of the year on May 6th. Club members make sure to rsvp before seats fill up. 
 
May 13th, we personally invite you to our Annual Oyster Feed!
One of our favorite events of the year! As will be releasing our three unique and crisp white wines that weekend, join us for a wine flight and a plate of oysters. 
 
Mother’s Day isn’t something to be missed either.

Treat your mom to a relaxing day at the winery, plan a picnic in our garden, and get her a glass of Rosé. What could be a better way to say we love you mom and appreciate all that you do! 
 
Lastly, we have our big and grand Memorial Day Weekend, May 25th – 29th! Joining us at the winery, we are lucky to have Ramy’s Lamb Shack out once again to feed our hunger on Saturday May 27th! 

 
While many of you will be adventuring in the Gorge, just remember to swing over when you are ready to put your feet up, grab a delicious lunch and sip on some fresh whites! This month can’t get much better!!! 
 
Oh wait, it can… 
 

Did we mention all the new wines we will be releasing?

 
Below we have listed the two club wines and three new whites. Introducing a new 2015 Mourvèdre to the winery, this wine is from the appellation of Horse Heaven Hills. Joining the Mourvèdre, we are releasing the 2015 vintage of our 100% Syrah, from Boushey Vineyard. 
 
If whites are what you are craving this time of year, let us introduce you to our stunning lineup. Grüner Veltliner from Washington State. This wine is dry and backed with crisp acidity. Grenache Blanc from Boushey Vineyard. This intriguing wine has aromas of orchard blossoms and citrus. And Picpoul, too from Boushey Vineyard. The wine to be highlighted on the 13th for our Oyster Feed brings us bright lemon, and key lime aromas. Bone dry and intensely fresh, this wine is perfect for pairing with shellfish.

Syncline Winery’s Oyster Feed 

Saturday May 13th, 2017

 
While we say cheers to spring and all it’s colors, we are hosting our favorite club event of the year! James and his crew will be shucking oysters from 11 am until we run out. We will pair them with a flight of our newly released 2016 Gruner Veltiliner, 2016 Grenache Blanc and the famous 2016 Picpoul! 
 
It gets even better… do all this while enjoying music from the Hapa Hillbillies. Live all day long at Syncline! Warm spring days, live music, chilled white wine and oysters for the grabs… Yes Please! 
 
This event is no charge to our club members. Bring your friends and celebrate these glorious gifts of the northwest.
